Long awaited sun arrives.
Warm smiles and less attire.
All green space topped with bathing bodies,
Drinking lemonade on the patio while barbecue smokes.
Along the terrace a line of backyards come to life.
Neighbours shout, topping the level of noise,
they are demanding their children stop creating.
Lunching under the garden umbrella.
Protected from the UVA's.
Becoming a target for the flying bugs that mistake
the bright orange canvas for a Marigold.
The joy of Warm Days, Lazy Days, Sun Days.
